Following a devastating 2007 fire that heavily damaged the Georgetown Neighborhood Library, a newly constructed, climate-controlled third floor (opened October 2010) now houses the Peabody Room. A number of materials were water-damaged during the fire and may not be publicly accessible. Finding aides for archival collections located at the Peabody Room can be found here.
